Aspen   2 comments


There are countless allies of the aspen tree~
A single white ray caught, clean and bright,
        in a misty web
Milky veins of quartz trekking through boulders
        sliced by ice
Gleaming lines of waterfall cleaving old mountainsides       
Sun-bleached femur of last year’s doe
And thin ribbon of moonlight slipping softly 
        between dark places
The aspen has long been my ally, too. Its smooth white trunk
fits exactly into the curve of my palm, leads me upward and roots me earthward.
Just as good friends always do.
